Now that you have had an extended time with this grill, how do you rate it now? Is it really good for smoking? As you may have guessed I am thinking about getting one.

I really like my cobb, but it is a pain to clean. I have not been able to use the 'moat' without getting ashes in it. It works well on a small amount of fuel, and it's compact, but the difficult cleanup kind of offsets that. Not sure I'd buy one again, but it's not annoying enough to replace. I used it several times last summer on the deck, and it's nice that you can cook on the table, and then clean it up in the dishwasher and put it away when you're done. But getting rid of the ashes and any juices that have accumulated in the moat before you can clean it in the sink is a pain.

For something completely different...

I picked one of these up at an auction a few years back. New in the box for $35, which I guess is a fraction of the real cost. By far, one of the best grills I've used. Should it ever wear out, I would even consider paying retail for a replacement. The flavor of wood grilling with the speed of gas. It can easily cook two steaks with a 3"x3" block of wood. Like most grills, it's still a pain to clean.

Cooool, that must be like cooking over a jet engine

If only we could have a grill that was small, easy to use AND easy to clean, we'd all be set.

Talking Cobb Grill

I looked at the Web site today and thought it was a great addition to traveling. I read some of the messages and they suggest you take paper towels to soak up the juices and wipe that clean. Then clean out the ashes left from the BBQ. It sounded like it would work OK. It was posted by the people from Cobb Grill.

Thanx for the tip on the Cobb Grill. We've been looking for something small like that. We've been using one of the Tool Box Gas Grills from Camping World. It's OK, but a lott bigger than we need. I'm going to start shopping the internet for a Cobb tonight. Does anyoune have a lead on the best price out there?

Yes, I've vistied the forum too. The problem is that when you get done the charcoal is all burnt to ash, and the moat is full of fluid. I have yet to clean the thing without ending up with soot streaked hands!

I got a laugh out of the demo. Not entirely true, I'd like to know how many coals it takes to cook that roast they keep showing! Last time I tried to cook a bunch of chicken I ended up bringing it inside and finishing in the microwave. I certianly can't imagine stir-frying, it just doesn't get rocket-hot. It's more of a slow cooker. Maybe I'm just not using enough briquettes. Also, last time I tried the 'potatoes and onions in the moat' trick, I ended up with sooty half-cooked potatoes.

If anyone else really gets the hang of using it, send some tips my way!

I love my Cobb grill. The skillet attacment is great for cooking breakfast outside on nice mornings. I use the smoker pot and pellets and have been pleased with the results.After the food is cooked I use paper towels to soak up the juices out of the moat, then add water to the moat and let it heat up and steam away while we eat. I bought a dishpan for a couple of bucks at Walmart that I fill it about 1/3 full of hot soapy water and take to the grill. All of the gunk just slides right of using this method. Then I dump that water and put in rinse water and dry everything and put it all away. Works well for me. That's my take on the system. 'shaker
